The social robot, Charlie, is based in the participant’s home and will interact and deliver lifestyle-centered services aimed at improving the young adult’s emotional wellbeing during a six month trial.
The social robot’s services are expected to engage, enable and empower the young adult by:
- providing positive emotional engagement through sensory enrichment services (e.g., singing and dancing to a variety of reading news
- enhancing learning experiences by offering interactive and emotionally engaging storytelling
- improving the participant’s cognitive ability through memory games and quizzes
- improving social connectivity with relatives and friends.
